What is GamerGate?

If you’re on social media–Twitter especially–you’ve probably heard about this #GamerGate thing. Friggin’ everybody’s chimed in on it at this point. Once-beloved creative personalities have completely embarrassed themselves and ruined their reputations over it. Our timelines have been savaged by twitter wars over it. But what IS #GamerGate? Between a comically corrupt press and over-reactionary twitter folk, it’s hard to get a straight answer that’s not laced with hyperbole, flat-out lies, propaganda, and knee-jerk reactionary BS. So, to help clarify what all this crap is about, The Other Side brings on YouTube personality (and all-around swell dude) Mundane Matt, who found himself knee deep in the controversy in its very beginning, to help clarify all this nonsense, and answer the pressing question; what is #GamerGate?
